hey, this is a great shot, I love the exression on his face and the blurred legs of the woman walking by. It really tells a story...

Your composition and lighting are excellent. It might have been more impactful without the legs in the upper left, although they do provide some context. You have definitely captured the sadness here.

Very good study. Those passing feet really add a sense of invisibility for this guy.

Great subject, I find street people very interesting. The slow shutter to capture the motion around him is very nice. I might have panned left a bit.

I really like this photo. Only improvement might have been to have the walker-by out of the picture but on the other hand maybe that helps tell the story. Maybe a slightly lower angle would help as well. But I really like it. 10

Very poignant; it conveys so much that I wonder if it is even right to comment on technical aspects. But I will :P, I wish the man's body were not cropped off from the right and bottom. A little more space on the bottom would also add some context...About the passerby I'm not so sure. I started out thinking that he would be better off missing, but on second thoughts, I think he adds to the neglected, passed-by
feel of the subject. Wonder what this looks like in B/W. 7.

The implied line running from the blurry shoe through the seam in the pavement and on through the wrinkles in his sleeves, though probably unintentional, might have been used creatively to your advantage.

Love the clarity on your subject with the motion blur of the foot of someone walking by behind him. Nice job!

Portrays more than just the man... I like the person walking by quickly behind him. I imagine that being ignored is just one of the common occurances in this man's life. Well caught.

Nice candid, the angle seems a bit awkward.

I like the perspecive of the motion-blurred foot in the background
